Midwife & OB-GYN Connections

Size Friendly Healthcare Providers

Far too often plus size women are shamed by their care providers and locating a compassionate provider can be difficult.  We’ve developed the list below from women who shared the names of providers who treated them with dignity.  We’re also thrilled that providers have contacted us directly and asked to be added. This list is slowly growing so if you don’t see a provider in your area refer to this resource – Finding a Size Friendly Care Provider.  If you’re looking for a doula checkout Plus Size Doula Connections.

Please use this list of size friendly care providers as a reference and remember to always do your own research when selecting a provider. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and not shamed because of their size!
